Retroepics | Carolina Theatre | Screen: Special Showings | Indy Week
This is a past event.


When: Jan. 8-14 2016



THE CAROLINA THEATRE—Hydrate first. And have a large meal; you'll need more than popcorn to get through the Carolina Theatre's RetroEpics series, which gives classic Hollywood extravaganzas the big-screen presentation they still deserve. Debate all you want about the merits of Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight in 70mm, but there's no question that the grandeur of 2001: A Space Odyssey and the restored version of Metropolis shines through only on a theater screen. Plus, there are chances to appreciate the powerful cinematography, costumes and scale of best-picture winners Gandhi, The Deer Hunter and the director's cut of Amadeus. Do take note: All of these films are at least two-and-a-half hours long, and sometimes three. See a few back-to-back and that's your whole day. It's worth it. Various times (see website for schedule), $9 per screening, 309 W. Morgan St., Durham, 919-560-3030, —Zack Smith
